I don’t know about you, but my phone was ringing off the hook yesterday…right up until 2PM, when the super-charged Full Moon in Libra went void of course, with a sigh…as if all the air had gone out of the sails. At a small dinner party last night, three longtime friends had barely enough energy to best a group of toadstools in a debate, had a group of toadstools been there to participate. Coincidence or conspiracy?
Today’s Moon continues to wander through relationship-oriented Libra, not to enter moody bastard Scorpio until 8:54PM ET, where it will demand depth and substance…or else. Until then, the day is driven first by a sober, constructive connection between mental Mercury and disciplined Saturn, which is helpful for weighing the pros and cons it is suggested the Libra Moon may present. Sun, Venus and rebel Uranus in pioneering Aries suggests strong idealism, independence and innovation in Venus-ruled areas (women, art, money, social expression), plus a buzz in Uranus-ruled domains such as aviation and technology.
In your own personal world, stick to what is routine, creative or restful and be patient with whatever weirdness the void brings to the table. Note the potential for sudden attractions to an aesthetic that is decidedly unconventional. Attractions noted while the Moon is void may be weird and of no consequence, but those encountered when the Moon is engaged in Scorpio after 8:54PM ET might stick. Happy hour, anyone? Maybe you’ll meet someone with 8 -11 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn prominent in their horoscope. They’re hot!
In the news, one story that seems perfectly timed, given the above planetary patterns, was the announcement on morning TV that Jenna Wolfe (of NBC’s Today) and her partner, foreign correspondent Stephanie Gosk, are expecting a baby later this year. Certainly the arguments presented before the Supreme Court on the subject of DOMA (a.k.a. the Defense of Marriage Act) are in synch with said patterns, and here’s the back story on the New York woman who brought this case to court.
Meanwhile, capturing the combative potential of aggressive Mars triggering the Uranus-Pluto square is this item about the “biggest cyber-attack in history” which apparently has impacted the entire web. On the plus side, pioneering Mars in Aries triggered this amazing story about innovations (Uranus) in the energy (Pluto) industry: behold the power of cows (a must-must read)! Compare the cow story to this infuriating “news from underground” — in this case, the destruction of precious water resources by the short-term thinkers in the fossil-fuel business, and….OMG…what is this soapbox I’m suddenly standing on?!
Have a wonderful day!
